Here is another photo of the abandoned house in downtown Koscuisko. I posted another one the other day that you can check out. I tried to give it a nice dramatic look and really bring out the textures of the house and the lawn.

Front Porch

Mon May 15, 2017

I found this abandoned home not far from the dowtown square in Kosciusko (an awesome town square by the way). As I've said many times, abandoned buildings always spark my curiosity for whatever reason and so I almost always photograph them. I gave this one a sepia tone to match the delapidation going on on the front porch.

Corner Store

Here is another shot from the square in Kosciusko. My wife and I spend a good bit of time there when we took these photos and explored the downtown area. I liked the lines leading you up the photo in this one and the glass with the nice reflection.

Square Courthouse

Fri Mar 10, 2017

Kosciusko has a beautiful downtown square and their courthouse sits in the middle of it, but unlike many courthouses on the square that I've seen, it sits up on a hill sort of overlooking the rest of the downtown area. Very cool place.

Covered

Sun Sep 18, 2016

This walkway leads up to the side of the Attala County Courthouse in Kosciusko. As I posted yesterday, the courthouse sits on top of a hill which allows this walkway to lead up to the basement of the building. I thought the covered walkway looked really cool with some nice leading lines going to the door.

Square Courthouse

Here is a photo of the Attala County Courthouse in Kosciusko. Kozy has a great downtown square and the courthouse sits atop a hill in the middle of it overlooking the rest of the square making it very visible and a great centerpiece in a great town.

Attala County Courthouse - Kosciusko

Wed Nov 4, 2015

I like leading lines and leading a viewer into the image, which is why I take a lot of shots that show perspective. I don't always think about every aspect of how an eye goes from one part of the image to another, but I do often think about making the viewer feel as if they are actually standing in front of whatever is photographed.

Corner Drug Store - Kosciusko

Thu Oct 15, 2015

Here's a vintage looking shot of a corner drug store, aptly named, Pickle's Drug Store (Love that name). Such a quaint and peaceful square in downtown Kosciusko.

A Splash of Color - Kosciusko

Sun Sep 20, 2015

As I edit photos in LightRoom I make a habit of saving photo settings as presets to use for later on other photos. So when I open a new photo to edit I will often go through my presets until I find one that works well on that particular photo, which I then tweak to get it just the way I want it. It makes my editing much more efficient and it also helps me to stumble across new looks that add to the variety of photos that I post, which is great, since I post a new photo every single day. Variety is a good thing. That was what happened on this photo. I was captured by the red crosswalk against a black and white scene. The courthouse was also splashed with red when I added the preset, but I decided that only the crosswalk should be red and lead the viewer up to the courthouse in a very dynamic way. I even played with keeping the trees green, but nothing else worked for me besides just the red crosswalk. I also left a dash of gold at the top to frame the courthouse and add a little bit of balance to it as well. I hope it works for you as well.

Abandoned House - Kosciusko

Wed Jul 29, 2015

I posted a picture a while back of this house, which you can view here. This house is located just off the square in Koscuisko, which I highly recommend you see if you haven't already as that is one of my favorite downtown squares that I've been to. Everything about this scene I loved, especially the overgrown grass, which I think just adds to the mystery of this house. I just love abandoned houses, although I'm sure town governments probably aren't fond of them. I'll let you in on a little secret about this scene. It was filled with power lines running across the sky, so I promptly removed them to make this a more peaceful photograph. And, yes, I am aware that the landscape is tilted, but I am a fan of the tilt a lot of times, though I think you can get too extreme with it. It adds to the interest of the landscape at times. Then again, sometimes it doesn't work.
